About the Company:
The Fokine Ballet Company was established in 1988 to enhance the area’s cultural climate with quality performances. The company prides itself on showcasing professional dancers of the highest caliber from the New York metropolitan area, and from Poland and Russia, with whom our young dancers have the opportunity to perform.

The Fokine Ballet Company’s production of the Nutcracker ballet each December hearkens back to the original 1892 Peters-burg production. The FBC version is based on Decker’s grandmother Alexandra Fedorova Fokine’s restaging of the original production for the Ballet Russe in 1940, and on her mother Irine Fokine’s 1957 version.
